The BME program is a multi-disciplinary program. It combines courses from the electrical, electronics, and mechanical engineering programs in addition to basic courses from medical program. It is a 164 credit hours program in which Outstanding students may complete their requirements in about 4 years. The aim of the BME program is to provide the market with graduate engineers equipped with both the theoretical and practical skills that make them capable of competing nationally and regionally in the job market.
BME program utilizes modern equipped labs in electrical, electronics, mechanical and computer programs to provide the students with the required laboratory skills needed in their engineering profession. To ensure the hands-on-skills, all BME students are required to complete 3 sessions of field training (each 80 hrs.) starting from the summer after 2nd level in fields related to BME internally or externally.
The program joined the student exchange program between The Missouri University with the Faculty of Eng. & Tech, Future Univ. Such program allows the outstanding undergraduate students to study at Missouri University of Science and Technology in order to develop their intellectual skills and build their overseas network.
The career for BM engineers is growing rapidly. The previous few years showed that there is a current and forthcoming job needs for engineers in the clinical and hospital environment capable of dealing with medical equipment and related fields. Thus, BM engineers may have careers in: Medical equipment companies for development of new equipment/techniques; Medical equipment agencies for maintenance, training, and sales purposes; Hospitals as medical staff support in surgical suites, planning and following up on maintenance, purchases, and inventory activities; Clinics for maintenance and training purposes; Software houses for developing new specialized software for medical equipment companies/agencies
